This really is, it changes the gameplay alot! Painting just changes the looks, but nothing alters the gameplay. With a track editor, Boom! New track all the time!

I don't think people realize just what this means for GT5. It single handedly puts GT5 head and shoulders above the competition. I cannot believe the effort PD has put into this game. And people hate on GT5 because of the long development cycle lol please.

i tried to tell ppl in the forums
about this feature when there was a gt5 vs forza 3 thread

and a bunch of 360 fans kept trashing me saying i was stupid and making stuff up

i guess i got the last laugh...

I've read on gtplanet earlier this year, that there will be a track editor, there you can use parts of the existing tracks and then you can combine them to a new track.
shazui123  +   1876d ago
With the recent rumors and videos that have been going around about Gran Turismo 5 having a track editor, we decided to contact the developers to find out if it was true or not. Now, we have a official answer.

They were kind enough to give us a quick response and this is what a representative said:(Take note, translated from Japanese.)

“Yes it will have a track editor. You will be able to rebuild a track from scratch or edit the tracks that are already put in Gran Turismo 5.”

WOWOW, thats certain then, from PD themselves :O

Yeah, it sucks that you have to wait for Turned 10 to copy this feature as well. Then you can have your wish! Until then, you have to buy a PS3 and use the feature in a real simulator.

Well, you could buy a PS3 and get ModNation, if you want to see it implemented in a Forza-like racer.

I don't even like racing sims, but these guys won't let me not buy the game. They just keep throwing stuff at me till I can't refuse!

It's like I say I don't want it and they're like;
PD: What if we add this.
Me: No.
PD: Well look at these graphics.
Me: No
PD: Okay, check this feature.
Me: I can't refuse anymore, that is awesome!
TheReaper42  +   1875d ago

now a certain group of people can't say GT5 doesn't have enough track :)
sikbeta  +   1875d ago
This is even BETTER

MNicholas  +   1875d ago
If true, this could either be
incredible or underwhelming.

Incredible if you can shape the tracks yourself but in terms of turns as well as elevation. Underwhelming if it just means you can vary the start and end points or different paths from existing tracks.

I hope it's the former.

BTW: GT5 Prologue >>Forza 3 says Eurogamer: DF

Digital Foundry put up a Forza 3 vs GT5 Prologue comparison and some people are trying very hard to keep this exciting news item hidden from you by keeping this off the front page of N4G through various well-known tricks.

Here it is:


GT5 Prologue wins by a landslide. So much so that the writer apologies not just for saying so but for Turn10 with unfounded speculation about their development priorities.

Turns out that Forza 3 doesn't even have AF enabled.

Copied from another comment:

Forza 3 "compared with GT5 Prologue?

+ Replay mode has slightly better motion blur
+ V-synced to avoid tearing

- GT5P has far more sophisticated lighting
- GT5P in 720P has 4xMSAA (double of Forza 3)
- GT5P in 1080P mode has 50% higher resolution but still has 2xAA
- GT5P is processing twice as many cars
- GT5P has tons of transparencies like dust-clouds
- GT5P has lots of effects (like heat haze) that Forza 3 simply does not"

who gonna have more tracks now b1tch???
Lou-Cipher  +   1876d ago
PlayStation X
Gran Turismo 5 will already have more tracks with or without a track editor.

I recently started playing Forza 3 a couple of days ago, so I decided to count the actual number of tracks Forza 3 really has.

Forza 3 only has 24 tracks with over 136 variations of those 24 tracks.

Half of those tracks aren't even real race tracks, so why it is even considered to be a sim is just plain ridiculous.

The fact that Turn 10 claims to have over a hundred tracks, when they actually only have 24 tracks, makes them look even more pathetic than they have already proven they are.

thor  +   1876d ago
I find this unlikely. There are many features which have been "confirmed", and then in a subsequent interview, they have been debunked, or PD say that they are only considering them. Of course fantastic if true, but it's not like it's a feature that you would keep secret - it takes A LOT of work to make a track editor.
Oldsnake007  +   1876d ago
PirateThom  +   1876d ago
If it's real, I would also lean towards it being more of a literal "track editor" rather than a full "track creator". Making adjustements to tracks already in the game, via tire walls or rumble strips to create chicanes.

I think if this is true then what Pirate Thom has mentioned is how it'll likely be.

Either way we should wait on official confirmation in English before getting too excited.

Track Editor!?
Holy hell that came out of nowhere. :)
gdguide  +   1876d ago
If true, it's amazing because users can create real life tracks that weren't included. But I'm not holding this as true until confirmed. I'm leaning towards not true though.

But imagine users creating the real tracks. Of course they wouldn't have the exact dimensions, elevation, and so on, but the main feel of tracks could be replicated. This would be the ultimate game changer.

aw c'mon guys, forza also had track editing, didn't you see when the road would just whisk away into gray textures or funny looking triangles? on the fly e(rror)diting!

I'm a Finn and would just like to confirm that the guy (Playstation commercial director in Finland) indeed says in that video that you can make your own tracks in the game and "play against others in multiplayer". You can debate wheather he actually knows what he's talking about, but you cannot argue the words that come out of his mouth.

So there you go. Peace!

As a native Finn I'd like to comment a little. The guy they interviewed was the local marketing director of PlayStation so as such he's a very reliable source. And yes, he did actually mention the user-created tracks but I'm not 100 percent if it was unintentional slip or simply a false statement. (You know, these marketing guys sometimes get a little bit excited and tell things that are not true.)

BTW The version they had at Digiexpo was TGS 2009 code. I even saw the disc clearly labeled "GT5 TGS 2009 demo" and played it for a while. ;)
thor  +   1876d ago
Yes you are right that these marketing guys often get over-excited. Such a HUGE feature as this would have been mentioned at a press conference, or as part of a big reveal. It would have at least been included on the already-released feature list. I've seen confirmation of split-screen when there isn't any, claims of 1080p when it isn't, claims of real-time gameplay when it's a pre-rendered trailer, the lot. For that reason I'm not getting too excited about this.

I'm not really a fan of the GT series, so I don't know this.
Will GT5 have split-screen? I'm thinking about getting this game because I did have fun playing GT in the PS1 gen with a friend. My girlfriend and I love playing games together, including racers but it seems this gen split-screen isn't in many games. So I was wondering if this will. Thanks to whoever can answer this and have a link to an article stating if it does or doesn't.

on a side note: Man I think it would be sweet to mix the customization of GT and the fun crashtasticness of burnout.
Sunny_D  +   1876d ago
Well, GT5 Prologue has split screen, so most likely GT5 will have the feature. :)
saint_john_paul_ii  +   1876d ago
GT series always come with split screen gaming as standard (2-players) so count on that. as for split-screen online multiplayer, idk. i happy anyway.

"Forza 3 only has 24 tracks with over 136 variations of those 24 tracks"

HOLY SH1T!! I wonder how that worked out:

Track 1 v1.0 - Original circuit.
Track 2 v1.1 - Original circuit + an added tree.
Track 3 v1.2 - Original circuit + an extra tree+stone combo.
Track 4 v1.3 - Original circuit + a extra brick on the wall.
Track 5 v1.4 - Original circuit + a secret road behind the mountains.
Track 6 v1.5 - Insert Disc '2'..........
Track 7 v1.6 - Original circuit + a tree and.....*wait for it*...a NEW oak tree.

Extra bricks will be coming in a DLC pack for $50.
